Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated redand white card covers. "At the age of 18, Tappan Adney embarked onhis firs t trip to Canada. He had plans to return to New York in the fall, but fate intervened -- he fell under the spell of the New Brunswick wilderness and the Maliseet people. Nothing escaped Adney's attention. He recorded the details of snowshoes and birchbark canoes and the Native names for birds and animals. He chronicled a caribou hunt on snowshoes, decades before woodland caribou became extinct in eastern Canada. In the journals, he recorded his travels from New York to New Brunswick, Quebec, and Nova Scotia. 'The TravelJournals of Tappan Adney, 1887-1890', is the first published version of Ad ney's first two journals. He would write three more before 1896. Retaining the authenticity of Adney's writing, this volume preserves the language of the day and spellings of names and places. It also includes reproductions of Adney's original sketches and a few early photographs." - from rear. Verygood. Due to its small size, shipping charges should be a bit cheaper than quoted. 10.00
